Toilet training difficulties

Achieving toilet training is a developmental milestone. Just as we expect individual variation in the timelines in which a child can attain other developmental skills such as talking and walking, we also expect variation between children in the attainment of bladder and bowel control.

Most children will begin to develop voluntary control of their bladder between the ages of 2-3. Toilet training is usually achieved by around the age of 3.5 years.

When to seek help:

If you child is having frequent daytime wetting or soiling (poo accidents) at age 4.

When toilet training has been unsuccessful or causing significant family frustration, or your child is regressing.

When there are other symptoms such as constipation or toilet avoiding/withholding wee or poos.
